A vertical test stand based on launcher propulsion system was constructed and several tests for the determination of cyclogram were carried out. To make an accurate estimation, static and dynamic pressures were measured and analyzed. Especially, static pressure measurements using fast response sensors without extension tubes were used to determine operation sequence more evidently. The standard operation times of final valves were determined in cold flow tests with an engine head, and fire formation time in combustion chamber was checked in an ignition test with an ignitor only. On the basis of these tests, ignition sequence was established and combustion test cyclogram was finally determined. According to combustion test, test results were well matched with the determined cyclogram within 0.05 sec.
